  3. If you are waiting for your doctor’s appointment, you can walk around the clinic or the hospital.
  4. A trip to park with your child can be turned into a mini workout place. You can run to catch the fly balls or throw a ball from one direction to the other.

When you are at work

  1. When you take a break, try climbing the stairs for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. If you plan to dine out for your lunch, walk to the restaurant on the route that is a bit far from your workplace.
